I Gave a Rifle a New Home!

For a while now, I've been considering acquiring the Noreen AR style .30-06 as an addition to the stable for various duties. Well, they ran a sale a few weeks back, so I decided to give one a new home and a comfy spot in my safe. I mounted a Vortex Viper PA 6.5-20x50 scope on it and will be taking it to the range soon. I will give a range report on it afterwards, if anyone is interested.

Here is the latest acquisition, the Noreen BN36X3 Long Range Assassin in .30-06.

These and the Cobb's have always intrigued the pee-waddle out of me. Sure would like to spend some time behind one.

Did Cobb sell out to Noreen? I don't seem to remember seeing the Cobb name after Noreen came onto scene?

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

I only discovered these about a year ago, at most. I have not heard of Cobb. I know that the Noreens have been in business for a few years. According to their own bio, they started making ultra-long range rifles as a father-son team back in 2007. Did Cobb also make a long action AR style rifle?

Yes, I believe they were the first to do so.

I found out through some googling that Cobb is out of business. They were bought out by Bushmaster.

Well, I guess that's a shame. For as awesome as an -06 would be, I just don't see me being able to shell out $2k for one any time soon. Lol.

I've never owned one, but I never could imagine see myself lugging around a .308 length AR-10, but I sure could see myself with a .30-06 though! Weirdness I guess. What would really trip my trigger would be seeing one in .25-06! That would be a speedgoat shooting son of a gun!

They DO make one in .25-06 as well. Yes, the 2245 retail is steep and no one seems to be discounting them, either. That's why I took advantage of the sale. (1800) Magazines are steep, too, though, at 125 each, and they're supposedly proprietary. I might have to check and see if a BAR magazine will work.

I should be hitting the range this week to do an op check and sight it in... I'll post results here.
